Green Festival Los Angeles 2011 Pictures @greenfestival
 

Day 1 of the Green Festival

So much to see and do. So many food samples and new and old faces.

The speakers had some great things to say.

I attended one of the panels on “blogging for good”, which was good to attend. As that is what I like to say I do…. Blog for Good, sometimes it may not be for the good of one party, if I am complaining about their product or service, but nonetheless it gives them an opportunity to fix it, and I am usually pretty fair.

Laura Klein – Siel Siel – Jerry James Stone – Karl Burkhart

Blogging for good was moderated by Laura Klein(Organic Authority)
on the panel:
Karl Burkhart(K2B Digital)
Jerry James Stone (Discovery Channel Tree Hugger)
Siel Siel (Green LA Girl)

Anyway, here’s some pictures from the first day and some of my favorite products.

 

1. Bean and rice chips, don’t miss trying these GMO FREE, gluten free chips, they are the best chips now available in new flavors. Reed Braude-Glidden(President and Founder) is a great guy to meet.

2. Beeswax cream

 

3. Orange Oil Cleaner -still have to try this out, but they convinced me to buy a bottle to try saying that it works for sure on all surfaces. The demo was with another “orange” type cleaner and how it has none of the orange oils.

Speakers for Sunday include:
Bill McGibbon and David W. Orr
Marianne Williamson intro by Jesse Carmichael
Ed Begley Jr. , Rachel Carson, Hill Harper, and Esai Morales

Hannah Crum will be doing a Kombucha 101 talk.
Mike Lieberman will be speaking about Container Gardening in the city.

There are dozens of talks, so don’t miss out on the second day of the Green Festival.

We are giving away to one lucky reader a copy license to VIPRE security software. Either send an email or post a comment that you would like to win. This software is invaluable to those who want to be protected from malicious attacks.

VIPRE is one of the antivirus programs whose uniqueness lies in the fact that it has combined antivirus as well antispyware into one strong antivirus tool. This ensures you remain absolutely safe from any miscreant who might be dodging technologies to create spywares to destroy your computers and hack your personal information.

The antivirus which I had previously was also a good one and was providing me absolutely safe environment but my system would run slow when I used to update it, but now when I have VIPRE, this problem is solved. I keep on working while software is updated automatically. When I installed it, I also felt it is very simple to use. Its best user interface and navigation system has made it very intuitive too. Even performing particular scans and doing adjustment with settings also provide no trouble. More than this, VIPRE runs most adequately in the background without any interference or any input from the user. It just not only protects you from spyware or malware but also gives complete coverage from rootkits, Trojans, worms, keyloggers, dialers, adware, malicious scripts, and a number of other malware threats.

The best part of this software is that its combined technologies will never allow your computer to slow down your PC rather will protect it from any threat whatsoever. Among the family of antivirus, VIPRE is considered as strength of your PC, and you can do any downloading, or any crucial task without any risk.

Disney’s Club Penguin- Game and Community Builder
 

Among the family of Disney games, Club Penguin has struck the right cod among children and parents alike. It is not just game but a way for children to create a sense of togetherness. It’s colorful and creative pictures preferably of Penguins entice children and adults too. The whole game is very challenging yet lucrative and creates a positive spot for the kids and families while taking care of the safety of children. Club Penguin can hosts several contests, promotions and charitable events too whereby kids feel safe and good about themselves while they make new friends.

The entire game is played in a very strict and safe environment whereby children have to follow certain basic rules like obliging other penguins and paying respect to them, no inapt talk and no revelation of any of the personal information. Moreover there is no scope of any cheating. Now Disney is also going to add certain parental controls over the website as they will allow parents to choose between the safe chat or free chat system, fix particular timings in which children can play and enjoy and moreover parents can also change kid’s password and visualize all the account activity. The whole concept of Club Penguin is to get children play, enjoy, and impart moral values in them and importance of charity. But the main problem of the game is that many of the popular features are for only members and so others are not able to use those features. Secondly if you log on during the peak hours, you will feel like confused by viewing similar penguins and many times it also becomes very difficult to read the names of penguins, and chatting also becomes very difficult to follow.

Overall with these new controls and options for chat, Club penguin is a positive entreaty in itself for the whole family to play. And now you can get 12 months of Club Penguin membership for the price of 8 months. Though parents have to deal with requests yet they can assure of themselves that their children will not be logged day and night at least.
